There’s a Beer for That’s expert sommelier, Steve Livens has put together the following 5 beer matches to perfectly compliment your favourite barbecued meats this Summer.
As we move into the summer months there are a huge range of beers that really come into their own for the warmer days ahead. A personal favourite are the delicious, smokey and roasted flavours of barbecued meat and fish which are a hit with a wide range of beers; from the light fresh character of a cold lager to the hoppy, citrus notes of pale ales right down to the complex dark, smokey flavours of porters, stouts and dark lagers.

The fruity, bitter and roasted notes of this wonderful complex dark and hoppy beer will complement the darker, smoky flavor of a barbecue burger perfectly.

Just as dark but lighter tasting than a porter or stout and with all of the roasted, toasty flavours, some caramel sweetness and nice hit of fruit and gently bitter hops. Perfect with a savoury, herbal sausage!
